    Default Upset stomach/possibly Smegma

    So I have a bull dog now who is around five months old and so far I've never had any health issues of any kind,but today on two separate occasions he has went number 2 in the house and needless to say it was anything but solid.there has been no change in food or any daily routine and to the best of my knowledge he hasn't gotten into anything that would upset his stomach,

    And another thing which I noticed today he had a greenish/yellow discharge coming from his penis,just from google it seems like it might be Smegma but I didn't know if the diarrhea and this might be connected any help would be greatly appreciated and if he's not better in a couple days ill probably be making a trip to the vet

    Bogey had ALOT of smegma, especially after he was neutered! My vet said that was very normal. He is a year old now, and we still see a little on occasion. The diarrhea most likely is unrelated. Although there has been no diet change, these fur balls can pick up bacteria anywhere! If it continues, I would bring a sample to the vets to have them look for bacteria, or parasites. Bogey has had 6 bacterial infections since we got him. We did start him on probiotics, and stopped going to the doggie parks in the warm weather- they are a haven for bacteria. Keep your pup away from puddles, rain water, or eating junk outside. Good luck!

    Winston has had the smegma too, it's pretty normal. I agree w/the comments above... you may want to take the stool sample to the vets to make sure there isn't something bacterial going on. Little guys can get dehydrated so quickly, better safe than sorry... Zeus is adorable Good luck & keep us posted!!!

    I don't know if smegma is the technical name for it but Brutus had yellowish/greenish discharge from his pee pee also and the vet said it was normal that it isn't actually coming from inside, it is from the sheath of his penis. He is now 11 mos and I haven't noticed it lately.

    As long as the discharge is small, it's normal. The stomach, like others have said, he probably picked up something and hopefully it will be gone in a day or so. If it's still bad this evening, I would take him to the vet.
